I think I can pull them in around 4 hours without air. They haven't been on too long and PB is my new best friend. Worth its weight in gold! I need to get this leveled out a bit anyway. Torsion moved up on me almost a full inch after my alignment and I can sure feel it in the front end. Need to get that squared away before the tire install. I sure don't want to ruin another set. The previous front end issues ate my other set up. I picked up a pair of like new used ones for $80 installed to get through the rebuild. 30s going on next week. I don't want to mess with fender trimming. This thing is too straight and I dont want to promote rust.

Well, another cold nasty day outside in the Midwest. Just what I needed to keep the project moving. Started working on blacking out the front end. Before.... grill was a weird gray color with green bleeding through. And of course that bright red badging has to go too.

And after a few coats of Transtar, much better. Contemplating doing bottom half of bumper where the tow hooks are (now even a different gray) with the same stuff. Then cleaning up the hooks and doing with a flat black.

Personally, I think the trucks look better with that bottom plastic piece removed completely. Just a matter of opinion, though. I always tended to like ratty junky looking stuff lol

Now, since my 5x8 Pro Comps are on the way, I'm having second thoughts about the 2 1/2" overhang I'm going to have with them and the new tires...... Actually contemplating returning them as soon as they come with no plan B in place..... Just not sure about it. Can't see any fender flares that won't look cheap and I don't have the time to mod the ZR2 flairs to a 4 door since it's my dd.

Lower bumper and tow hooks complete. Now contemplating some contrast on the front badging. Tossing up between camo pattern on the GMC or in the body color. Any suggestions?

Think about matching body color with the gmc

edit: realized it sounded like a question lol. I think the body color would be good lol. A pattern would stick out unless you put more around somewhere else, like door handles maybe...
